What direction is Microsoft trying to go, and can it compete with the likes of Amazon? Rob Enderle, principal analyst at Enderle Group, stopped by chat with us about the tech giant's future. Afterwards, we'll look at IBM Watson's latest appearance: the Wimbledon courts as part of the All England Lawn Tennis Club tournament. Watson's tech will measure different data to create highlight reels — which IBM says will take half the time of human video-highlight editors.
